Students eating snacks at school

Starting April 8th, in-person students will receive a small snack (sliced fruit and a granola bar) each day. Our staff will work to ensure that students are 6ft apart when eating in order to follow the safety guidelines. Due to allergy & safety precautions, students will not be permitted to bring their own snacks.

Daily Health Screener

Families of in-person students will still need to complete the daily health screener for each child each day prior to 8:35 am.

If you have not already done so, please consider uploading a picture of your child that may be used as a part of the 20-21 yearbook by April 9th. Additionally, each class will participate in a classroom picture via Zoom (gallery view) on April 13th.
